This is a customer’s quilt that I recently completed called Slide Show by Atkinson Designs. It was made for my customer’s son’s wedding.
Once I completed the quilting she had a week to spare to get the binding on before she was heading to the wedding. I haven’t heard if that got completed before she left; you know how stressful and busy the week before a wedding can be!
If you’re old enough to remember actual film that was loaded into a camera then you’ll understand the reference for Slide Show’s design. This is NOT a Microsoft PowerPoint reference!
For those who only vaguely remember, here’s a reminder: the film was advanced on a roller that had pegs on either side. The 2” squares located around the large square depict the holes at the edge of the film that went over those pegs.
I used a King Tut variegated thread in both the top an bobbin with this overall meander design. The back was also all black so the variegated thread was a great choice there.
I think my customer did a great job. The use of batiks against black is always stunning and I love the geometric design.
